Iron Jawed Angels screens in the Women's Center Sunday, Oct. 31, 7:00 p.m.

The Women’s Center will screen the film Iron Jawed Angels on Sunday, October 31, 7:00 (after the community Halloween parade and trick or treat event) for those who are interested and can attend!

If that misses some of the folks who would like to see this film, we’ll arrange subsequent times.

The film Iron Jawed Angels dramatizes the struggle for women’s suffrage in the U.S., and in particular the militant tactics of Alice Paul and the National Women’s Suffrage Association during the Wilson administration. It’s a powerful reminder of what the vote meant for these women, and what our foremothers went through to win us the right to participate in choosing our elected representatives.

About Ha_Qohelet

Ha_Qohelet is a transliteration of Hebrew definite article plus a feminine participle, all together meaning "the (feminine) one who assembles" or who calls together. Qohelet is the title of one of the books of the Hebrew Scripture, known in English as Ecclesiastes. The Women's Center at LPTS feels the epithet of Qohelet is a fitting one for what we do and are. The Women's Center is, indeed, a caller-together, a caller-to-wisdom, and an assembler -- of people, of ideas, of actions, and ultimately, we hope, of transformations in the world. In this context, Ha_Qohelet is the Director of the Women's Center, and Editor-in-Chief of Wimminwise.
